What to say when people ask if you would take your Ex back

What to say when someone ask IF YOU WOULD TAKE YOUR EX BACK

If you have split up from a long-term relationship, friends and family will often ask if you want to get back together with your Ex. Whatever happened with your last partner, whether it was a rollercoaster ride from hell or a happy relationship, you may not want to give away too many details.

People don’t need to know that you were tired of your boyfriend farting in his sleep or the other inane details of why the relationship broke down. When you share your intimate relationship details with a nosy Aunt Nelly or the office gossip, there is a pretty good chance people will be having a laugh and discussing your private life.

There is a famous Les Brown quote:

Don’t tell anyone you’re problems. Eighty percent of the people don’t care and twenty percent of the people are glad that you have them.

Next time someone asks if you would take you’re Ex back, use one of our clever comebacks that let people know that you’ve moved on, but aren’t going to share the juicy details of the break-up.


Our FREE Starter Guide will show you the 3 simple steps you can take right now to stand up for yourself so that you can feel confident. It’s a game changer–get it free for a limited time!

I wouldn't go back to my ex even if her parole officer okay'd it.
Taking your ex back is like going to a garage sale and buying back your own crap!
I still miss my ex, but my aim is getting better.

Sandra later shared that she devastated by the break-up and the media drama that ensued, but she had to put one foot in front of the other and get through it.

You don’t think it will pass when you’re in the middle of it, but it does.

Sandra is a great example of handling a break up with dignity.
